Love's Greeting from The Attic

As you enter The Attic, this is our main Valentine's Day display. We covered a glass top iron table with a pretty lace tablecloth and added a white tulle border. Underneath, we placed a small light to cast a soft glow. It isn't noticeable during day time hours, so we turn it on when we leave the store. It looks so pretty from the outside of the shoppe! The locals can enjoy this during their evening strolls along Tenth St. (You can click on any image to enlarge)

A vintage boudoir doll is center stage, surrounded by pairs of champagne flutes tied up in pretty ribbon.

Pretty pink and white hand poured soaps, a silver teapot set, cranberry glass lamps and antique romantic postcards complete the display. Hand poured soaps and wonderfully scented candles from $6.95.

We have many other gifts for your Valentine throughout the store. Locally handmade pillows with sweet sentiments such as Always Kiss Me Goodnight, Bella and Wake Me With A Kiss.

We also feature a special collection of Gina B. jewelry that was an instant hit over the holidays. She is one talented lady and we are lucky to have her here at The Attic. Vintage typewriter key necklaces, chandelier crystal earrings, watch face necklaces with your initials or a keepsake photograph of your loved one. You can bring in your photos and Gina can add your photo to one of her watch faces or you may provide your own. (see sample below)

Vintage jewelry is always fun to receive and we have a nice selection of costume earrings, necklaces and pins, reasonably priced.

New arrivals each week, so stop by to see what's new. We'd love to see you at The Attic in Coronado.

It's that time of year...

We've been busy little Attic Girls this week, setting up our Valentine displays...

We have some great gifts for you. Hand poured soaps in 3 new delightful scents. Candles, new jewelry, Pashmina shawls, pillows and more!

Our heart & key charm bracelets have been so popular, and we have them in silver or gold tone finish for $15-18 each.

I forgot my camera today, but we finished the front entry display this evening. It's really beautiful and I promise to get a picture before the weekend for you to see.

Something new at The Attic

Stop by and see the beautifully designed tee shirts by Debbie Hodge of Coronado. She has a children's line of handmade clothing called Lill' Bird that is the cutest I have ever seen! We currently have two styles of her t-shirts in The Attic, but hope to add more from her line. The pale pink shirts are shown below, but it is also available in white. Just click on the photo to enlarge. :)

Vintage Queen..isn't she lovely? I just might have to get this one for me. :)

The Vintage Chandelier tee, with an added sparkle of chandelier crystals at top!
Be sure to visit her blog and tell her the Attic Girls sent ya!

Sunsets & New Merchandise!

Sunset in Coronado 1/18

We returned from the LA Gift Show yesterday, to our beautiful city.

There really is no place like home.

We had a great time at the show and we're excited about the new items we have ordered for you! The merchandise won't be arriving for another 4-6 weeks, but we were able to pick up some "cash and carry" items to bring in right away. We have lots of jewelry, just in time for Valentine's Day. We also have some pretty Pashmina shawls in an array of colors, and a few great signs. This one is my favorite, rusty metal letters on a wonderful old piece of painted it!

I just had to take a photo of the this window display at the Gift Show, and this unusual round settee.

I'll add more photos of our shoppe later this week!
Until then,

A New Year ...a New Look

The Attic Girls are looking forward to the New Year, and will be changing things up a bit! We will be adding a small collection of vintage clothing and also a collection of kitchen goods...a mix of vintage and new. This will all take place sometime later this month, and I will add a few photos to share with you. The L.A.
